Never a disappointment. Best meal during our vacation. Everyone we send there loves it!! The chef comes out and describes the evening menu along with Rocky, the waiter down to the new “water girl”.... friendly and definitely an annual tradition!!!

The restaurant isn’t that far but certainly need a cab. It’s not in town it’s in a residential area. I’m not sure about reservations I’ve only been there for dinner.
